Ironically enough, my quiet time this morning found me in Matthew 28. I try to read straight through scripture book by book as I study it, instead of taking little sections from here and there and piecing them together.

I wish I knew what to tell you to expect on here, but, alas, I do not. I have a feeling it will be quite the eclectic mix of journal entries,…
